Continental Championship Wrestling 1987

Hi again wrestling fans and all the Kayfabe Memories family.  Once again its time to look back at the action of CCW, this month we look at 1987.

Before going on to this months article I would like to touch on a couple items that have happened since the last time we were here. Firstly, former Southeastern and Alabama Heavyweight Champion and forever "Fabulous Freebird" Terry Gordy sadly passed away. I was lucky enough to see "Bamm Bamm" in action for several months in 1982 during Gordy's run in Southeastern and he was totally awesome to see. I was also lucky enough to make the trip to Birmingham, Alabama in August, 2001 for the Terry Gordy Tribute Card and it was a very emotional night, especially during the playing of the Lynryd Skynyrd anthem "Freebird" and seeing Michael Hayes and Terry's son Ray come out to that music and wearing the Freebird "colors". RIP Terry Gordy.  On a more obscure note, yet a sad moment as well was the passing of Gulf Coast Wrestling star Greg Peterson. Condolences as well to the Peterson family.

 January - June

As 1987 began Kevin Sullivan was the reigning Continental Champion and also still the manager to Chris Von Colt and the team of the Headhunters. Sullivan's main two adversaries were the masked Tennessee Stud (Ron Fuller) and the Bullet (Bob Armstrong). However by February the "Mystic One" would lose the services of his army of misfits as Colt would leave the area and in a strange twist lose control of his Headhunter tag team to Buddy Landel in a dressing room card game in Knoxville, Tennessee that was aired on CCW TV. The Tennessee Stud garnered the Continental title from Sullivan in early February but rather than attempting to regain the title Sullivan became involved in a feud with newcomer Doug Furnas. During a cage match in Knoxville, Sullivan attacked Knoxville promoter Bob Polk and the former Tennessee Vol and world-renowned power lifter Furnas came to Polk's defense. Furnas would come under the tutelage of Ron Fuller during these battles with Sullivan and his new cohort in crime Ron Wright. By March though Sullivan was no longer appearing in Birmingham for the CCW TV tapings and only wrestling on the Knoxville house shows. Nancy Sullivan aka known as Fallen Angel was also appearing by Sullivan's side for the Knoxville shows.  More...
